In the heart of West London, you'll find this beautiful Victorian gastropub, and inside, a vibrant and cosy setting in which to enjoy a superb menu.

In keeping with its Victorian heritage, the interior has a delightfully nostalgic feel combined with an air of contemporary elegance. The Bollo strives to create a homely environment for its guests and clearly holds the values of community close to its heart - you'll sense this for yourself in the familiar and comfortable ambience of the restaurant and in the friendly smiles of the accommodating staff.

My guest and I opted for deep-fried calamari and chicken Caesar salad to start. The calamari was particularly outstanding; perfectly prepared squid encased by an exquisitely light and crispy batter. The Caesar salad cannot pass without discussion, comprising impeccably fresh leaves, tasty, crisp bacon and succulent chicken breast complemented by a wonderfully light dressing.

With our palates sufficiently whetted, we received our mains of king prawn linguine with chilli and garlic tomato and a grilled tuna steak. With a simple yet gorgeous garlic tomato sauce accompanying the meaty prawns, the linguine was a real example of culinary expertise. The tuna steak also illustrated the chef's proficiency, with exquisite, subtle flavour and pleasing tenderness. Far from your usual pub grub, we were experiencing truly superb food provided by a top-drawer chef.

Desserts of refreshing raspberry sorbet and comforting blackberry and apple crumble were, as we'd come to expect, perfectly prepared and concluded a very pleasurable dining experience.

Particular praise goes to the artistry of the dishes. Each and every plate was assembled and displayed beautifully, demonstrating a clear eye for detail and setting the establishment quite distinctly aside from other pub restaurants.

We'd thoroughly recommend The Bollo as a place to bring friends and family alike. Not only does it provide excellent food, but offers service, style and class to match. A visit is essential if you're ever passing through the area or feeling like an afternoon jaunt to somewhere new.
